Would make a good movie?

Carlton Tavern

Historic

Unfortunately with public house trade down [due to stay at home drinkers] and the ever-increasing pressure on housing in the capital, demolition of this nature is sure to increase.

The fact that developers must have known that plans were afoot to get the pub grade II listed, and that it was loved by the local community, just makes their actions more vile.

I have no doubts that they will just get a little smack on the wrist fine [something they will have known/accepted ahead of time] and housing development will go ahead anyway. It would be ridiculous to try to make them put things back as they were.

The only way to prevent this type of situation happening in future is to have a law that forces any such wrongdoers to hand over ALL profits from any such developments to English Heritage.

That and a ‘hit squad’ of activists that can bus it around to any disputed locations, to lie in front of bulldozers in the best Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy style?

hole

Simple concept, well done. Especially like the fact that the ‘gizmo’ for affecting cloning is not a gizmo, just a hole in the grass.

touched

I watched this bitter sweet Storyville last night. I visited Loch Arkaig about 25 years ago. I never nearly died, but the film touched a nerve. Perhaps just bank holiday blues.

This is a film about dreams, inspiration and the resonating power of hope.

I only got 70% but apparently that makes we ‘well read’?

Your score: 7/10  You are extremely well read!

This game is looking like a winner? Ori and the Blind Forest. A traditional type platformer but the visuals look scrumptious. These are the ‘simple’ games that all to easily become totally immersive; especially if you have an enormous screen to play on with surround sound.
